IIUSA submits comments to USCIS ahead of April 29 listening session
Tomorrow, Friday, April 29, 2022, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services will host its first EB-5 listening session in more than two years. The agency announced the listening session less than two weeks ago and the session will cover further guidance on implementation of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 which is set to take effect on May 14, 2022.
After posting to its website that all Regional Centers were no longer authorized and would be required to submit for re-designation, IIUSA sent a letter to USCIS that requested a meeting to discuss the issue, outlined the consequences of the move to require re-designation by all regional centers, and provided a proposed attestation letter that all existing regional centers could file proving compliance with the new law that would both ensure implementation of intended program integrity and avoiding undue harm to good actors of the industry.
In response to USCIS’s open call for comments and questions ahead of the April 29th listening session, IIUSA re-submitted the April 18 letter and attestation form. IIUSA submitted additional questions under separate cover and is eager and hopeful that the agency will provide helpful and clear guidance on the industry’s many questions ahead of implementation of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022.
The listening session will take place tomorrow, April 29, from 2:00 – 3:30pm ET and can be joined with the following link: https://uscis.webex.com/uscis/onstage/g.php?MTID=e04bd28843b4dfaf24dcee4999f62519c
